UnionPay International is set to launch its ‘upgraded’ cross-border mobile payment service in South Korea.
The upgraded service will allow customers to shop at the Shilla Online Duty Free via PC, mobile phone and tablet, and pay with UnionPay Online Payment.
The safe and convenient payment service is available to cardholders with UnionPay cards issued outside South Korea.
UnionPay said that the upgrade has simplified the process of receiving dynamic key through short message. Now, customers will have to set a password when binding their UnionPay cards and then pay with UnionPay by entering the password.
The company has urged its cardholders to complete account registering and card binding process before going abroad, as they need to receive the dynamic verification code when binding the card.
UnionPay said that its mobile QuickPass in South Korea has made substantial progress. Currently, the Doota Shopping Center, all the Watsons stores, GS25 convenience stores, and GONG CHA chain stores all support mobile QuickPass.
